A loan of $3,850 helped a member to purchase vegetables for her stand.

Christ Is The Way Group's story

Olga is divorced, she has 2 children, and she is 44 years old. She is a member of the communal bank named "Christ is the Way", a group made up of 10 members who all have various business types. Olga has had her vegetable stand business for the past 10 years in the market. This business was established following her divorce when she had to work to support her children. Olga did not want to financially depend on her ex-husband and so she worked very hard. Despite everything, her wish to improve herself was greater than her problems. And thanks to her efforts and dedication she has managed to secure a better income, she has built a house, purchased a plot of land, and her children went to school. Olga tells us that as a woman and a mother she feels proud for her achievements. She says that she is happy and that she has a good quality of life. The loan that was granted to her was to purchase merchandise. We know that Olga will achieve her goals through a great deal of work and effort and that the loan through Edaprospo (Kiva Field Partner) will help her.
